Flexibility in the Workplace


Did you know that smaller employers might be more likely to provide greater workplace flexibility than larger employers?  While larger employers have come a long way in that area, smaller employers are more willing to be flexible with starting and quitting times, let employees control break times, take time off during the week without pay to tend to family or personal issues.  They are also more willing to let new mothers/fathers return to work gradually after childbirth or adoption.  Some small employers let employees work some regular hours at home occasionally.  As an employer, you might be thinking I can’t do that, I will lose control of my employees.  However, if you have devoted, loyal employees, agreeing to a flexible work schedule will make them happy and more productive.  It can be a win/win situation.  While flexibility in the workplace doesn’t work for everyone or every company, if such an opportunity presents itself you might want to give it some thought.

This week’s question:  What have you as an employer offered to your employees, to provide more flexibility in the work place.  Was the experience positive or negative?

I have worked under all circumstances. Large medium and small businesses do have varying degrees of flexibility. Unless the small company is owned by a control freak, they are more flexible as it is more like working for a family.
